The full moon shines again tonight, and I’m afraid of what it will bring me
Unexpected tidings of hopeless love,
the promise of what could never be
It’s shown me the place where pleasure and pain can belong together.
And tonight, it’s led me once again to where my tears
can find no cover
In the flimsy shelter of secret memories, where the past we shared
should now be left alone
Where the raw honesty of the words you speak to me
chills me to the bone.
A fool’s moon shines brightly tonight, hanging over me like a hangman’s noose,
Waiting to snare me in its spell one last time,
for it knows I no longer have you to lose.
